UPDATED: JAN 23, 2021 Une dinguerie. Le nez dégage tout de suite quelque chose de très floral. La bouche est fabuleuse, résineuse, florale avec toutes les saveurs de l'épicéa qui enrobent le palais. Il y a un côté un peu sève qui apporte du corps et de la structure. C'est infiniment complexe, magique. Parmenion777 (1080) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2021 375ml bottle – Pours an almost clear dark reddish amber colour with a tiny off-white head that settled to a thin film. Aroma is tart fruit, berries with notes of honey and spruce. An initial sharp tart taste, quite a lot of flavours follow, sweet honey, spruce, tart fruit, berries and vinegary flavours with a dry sour finish. It’s not Finnish so not Sahti but an interesting sour all the same. vcsa (295) - - NOV 11, 2020
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2020 Appearance: Pours clear deep amber. Creamy off-white head, no lacing.

9/1 Juicy tart red berries, vinegar and sweet malt with pronounced hints of spruce and pine needle. Moderate sweetness with austere but not edgy acidity. Tart finish with red forest fruits and sweet aftertaste.
味道：多汁的红色莓果、香醋和甜麦芽，伴随着明显的杉木和松针。适中的甜度伴随着 Medium bodied, slight oily texture, soft carbonated.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2020 Bottle at share: pours brownish with fizzy head. Aroma is loads of spruce. Aroma is winy, loads of spruce. Taste is very acidic, spruce is not as well represented, but does make a nice appearance in the finish. Nice taste, but too acidic for me. Does not seem very similar to the real deal. explosivedog (6378) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 17, 2020
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2020 Bottle, at share, thanks to me. Pours red. Forest floor, spruce needles, walking through a forest, raspberry, pear, barrel, sharp. Medium body. Really good. BeardedAvenger (4338) - New Haw, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2020
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2020 Sahati
Bottle ordered from Ghost Whale, Putney. Aroma of fruit, berries, honey and spice with a vinous edge. Opaque amber. Thin creamy off-white head, retreats to the rim. Ooph. That was far tarter than I was expecting. Vinous and red berries. Real sharp edge to it. As I I acclimatise to it the honey sweetness comes through. Medium bodied. Slick. Flat carbonation. High astringent finish. Dry too. It's a sour. The Sahti inspiration seems to have been lost in translation, although with this tartness I'm using my sisu to get through it.

Hazy amber colour, tiny off-white head. Tart vinegar, berries, light herbal notes. Medium-bodied. Super tart, mouthpuckering, Berryish, earthy flavour. Absolutely nothing to do with Sahti. Could be quite good but it is just way too tart.
